Rochelle Calvert, PhD, psychologist and somatic experiencing expert, Joins Dr. Paula Joyce on Uplift Your Life: Nourishment of the Spirit radio program on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel Thursday, December 16th at 8am Pacific to explain how coupling direct experience of the natural world with mindfulness and somatic practices offers an effective approach to healing trauma.

The impact of one traumatic childhood experience can affect the rest of one’s life even if it has been repressed or forgotten. When someone does not know how to process trauma, it gets stuck in the mind and body. Healthcare providers often miss the connection between past trauma and current anxiety, depression, and health, financial, and relationship problems. When the correct cause is not identified, it is harder to cure the problem. The World Health Organization says that over 70 percent of people experience trauma, with an average of three events per person, and 78 percent of people who had a traumatic experience develop posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Most think of trauma as rape, war, terrorist attacks, violent personal assaults, and natural disasters. It is much broader than that, however, including anything causing one to feel lack of control, like emotional and mental abuse, bullying, betrayal, the pandemic, global warming, serious medical diagnoses, loss of a loved one, and prejudice. Trauma can cause a person to feel disconnected from themselves and others. Research shows that spending just 5 minutes in nature allows one’s heart rate to slow, muscles to relax, and the mind to quiet. Fifteen minutes in nature causes a reduction in the stress hormone, cortisol, and 90 minutes results in reduced mental preoccupation with problems and increased connection to others and the world. Nature benefits the exact parts of the mind and body that are affected by trauma. Dr. Calvert shares how one can engage with nature to relax, tune into the somatic wisdom of the body to face lingering trauma and rewire it, and work with painful experiences to transform them and heal oneself and the world.
